Weaving Connections: Educating for Peace, Social and Environmental Justice.
Goldstein, Tara, Ed.; Selby, David, Ed.
This collection of essays by Canadian educators seeks to achieve two goals. First, it documents educational philosophies and approaches that are directed toward equity, justice, peacefulness, and earth awareness. Second, it challenges current directions in Canadian school reform that promote "back to basics," centralization of control, a conformist concept of citizenship, corporate intrusion, deprofessionalization of the teacher, "doing more with less,""learning for earning," and performance measurability. Following an introduction by the editors, essays are: (1) "Anti-Homophobia Initiatives at the Former Toronto Board of Education" (T. McCaskell; V. Russell); (2) "Multicultural and Anti-Racist Education: The Issue Is Equity" (O. M. Wright); (3) "Black Education in Canada: Past, Present and Future" (M. Bramble); (4) "Educating for Citizenship in Canada: New Meanings in a Changing World" (M. Evans; I. Hundey); (5) "Development Education: Making Connections North and South" (L. Cronkhite); (6) "Education for Gender Equity: Origins and Development" (L. Mofatt); (7) "Navigating the Waters of Canadian Environmental Education" (C. L. Russell; A. C. Bell; L. Fawcett); (8) "A Tapestry in the Making: The Strands of Global Education" (G. Pike); (9) "Reading between the Lines: Examining Assumptions in Health Education" (G. Smith; L. Peterat); (10) "Humane Education: Widening the Circle of Compassion and Justice" (D. Selby); (11) "Law-Related Education: Promoting Awareness, Participation and Action" (W. Cassidy); (12) "Media Education in Canada" (B. Duncan; J. Pungente; R. Shepherd); (13) "Molded Images: First Nations People, Representation and the Ontario School Curriculum" (S. D. Fletcher); and (14) "Educating Towards a Culture of Peace" (T. Swee-Hin; V. Floresca-Cawagas). (BT)
